Weekend Reads: “Only a Hero Will Do”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a fun Regency romp, with characters based on heroes and villains from Marvel Comics (by the author’s own admission). Elizabeth Atwell is a member of the Legion, a group determined to protect the Crown from threats against it. So is Captain Grant Alexander, a muscular, sensitive hunk — who only wants to protect Elizabeth from harm.
The two are united against Typhon, the leader of a dark organization determined to overthrown the government.
I am not a comic book reader, but I have enjoyed many of the movies. It was fun picking out the various Avengers and members of Hydra in the tale, which as in and of itself a delightful piece of romantic suspense.
